Reports of the Native Affairs Committee, 1887, No. 1

[No. 69.—Petition of Timoti Karetai and 5 Others.]

No. 69.—Petition of Timoti Karetai and 5 Others.

Petitioners pray that the arrangements made by Mr. Wakefield and Mr. Symonds in the year 1844 may be adhered to—namely, that every tenth acre should be returned to the Natives out of the purchased lands.

I am directed to report as follows: That, as Judge Mackay is now inquiring into claims in the Middle Island, it is not necessary for the Committee to take special action, but it recommends the petition to the consideration of the Government.

[Translation.]
No. 69.—Pukapuka-inoi a Timoti Karetai me ona hoa tokorima.

E Mea ana nga kai-pitihana ko nga whakaritenga i whakaritea e te Wekipiri raua ko Hamiona i te tau 1844 me whakatuturu (ara) me whakahoki i roto i nga whenua i hokona te eka kotahi i roto i nga eka kotahi tekau ki nga Maori.

Kua whakahaua ahau kia ki penei: I te mea kei te whiriwhiria e te Make nga tono o te Waipounamu kahore he mea e tahuri ai tenei Komiti ki te whakahaere i tenei tono, e rangi e tono ana i te Kawanatanga kia whiriwhiria e ratou.
